Step1::Ground yourself by first touching a metal object or wearing an anti-static wrist strap. This helps protect your computer's internal
components from damage due to static.
Step2::Shut down your computer and unplug it to protect yourself from electric shock.
Step3::Open your computer's case using the door on the side or follow the manufacturer's directions for your desktop.
Step4::Install the DVD ROM on its own IDE channel. Since a DVD ROM uses a good bit of memory, it should also be the master drive. Set your old
CD ROM or secondary DVD ROM drive to "slave" and set the new DVD rom drive to "master."
Step5::Slide the new DVD ROM in the free 5 1/4-inch bay and use clips or screw into place if necessary, then use the data cable that came with
the DVD drive to connect your new drive. Plug in the power cable as well.
Step6::Replace the cover on your computer, plug it back in and boot it up. If you have Windows XP, it should automatically detect and attempt
to install the new DVD ROM drive. If it doesn't, use the installation disk that came with your DVD ROM.

D drive will not load some disc programs in to the computer


If you are saying D drive is your CD/VDVD drive? If you are installing from CD/DVD drive then suddenly stop the installation/setup/loading you must check your disc drive. To check your cd/dvd drive insert a cd or dvd cleaner and start cleaning most of the cleaner has a movie inside of the disc and run for about 10 minutes. Then try again installing/setup/loading the program to your computer. If its still the same, replace your CD/DVD drive with a new cd/dvd drive because your cd/dvd drive is need to be replace. Have a nice day

I replaced an old CD/DVD R/W drive with an LG GH22N550 22X Internal SATA Super Multi DVD drive. The old drive was an IDE, I believe. After installing the new drive, the system wouldn't boot. It kept...


Look on the back of the old drive to check the jumper settings (master/slave) and set the new drive exactly the same. If that doesn't work, you may have to connect the drive to a different IDE connection on the motherboard... Also, check the BIOS settings for your IDE drives and make sure the one for the CD is set to AUTO or CD-ROM.

Getting CRC errors when installing new software, using Lite-On DVDRW SOHW-1633s, when installing Cab files, testing same software on another DVD drive and inpacked Cab files and installed fine...


Your CDROM is out. You can get a new one fairly cheap and they are easy to install. The laser goes out fast on the Lite-on's. can be caused by dust or just extreme usage.

My acer 5315 laptop dvd does not work,when i put a dvd says unable to detect a dvd device on your computer.


Does it read CD's..? Does it only fail on DVD's?

Try installing new firmware, try physically reseating the DVD drive. Try unistalling and reinstalling the device through Device Manager.

If everything fails still, then you have a bad DVD drive and will have to get a new one.

Troubleshooting helps......

Need the cd-rom exchange for dvd


If the software comes on a DVD I would assume that the files contained on the disc are just too big to fit on a CD. Have you considered changing your (old) cd-rom drive for an up to date dvd burner drive? You can buy an 18 speed DVD burner for around £20 these days and installing an optical drive is one of the easiest upgrade jobs you can do on a PC. Simply a matter of removing the old drive and then installing the new one and reattaching the cables.......

I REPLACED THE HARD DRIVE ON MY MAC IBOOK 1.2. AFTER REPLACING IT I STARTED IT UP BUT THE LCD DOES,NT COME ON. I CAN HEAR THE HARD DRIVE RUNNING. I CAN,T EJECT THE OSX DISK OUT OF THE CD/DVD.


Is it possible that you accidently pulled a connector off of the CD/DVD drive while you were replacing the Hard drive? Other then that, there should be little reason for you CD/DVD not working if it was working to begin with and I assume it was. Don't worry about the Hard Drive LED, until you start installing your new operating system. It is entirely possible that the Hard drive LED will be hard to see until you start installing to it.

Installing new dvd drive in dell computer


If you only got one drive in the computer then set the dvd drive  to master. Your DVD Drive should be set as master. When you install a second drive you can use the second drive as a slave.
But always make your main drive master.
